The purpose of this thesis is to determine how time affects the factors that influence the retention decision of Navy enlisted members . The empirical analysis utilizes two different samples, the first composed of enlisted members and the second of members and their spouses. What differentiates this study from other retention studies is the stratification of the samples before conducting the analysis. Multivariate analysis was used to determine the change in the probability of reenlistment and the significance of identified variables. Results show that member's intentions are a good predictor of reenlistment behavior, and that the impact of each factor affecting the reenlistment decision changes, depending on the member' s gender, time to EAOS and enlistment term. Spouse and family factors were also found to affect the member's reenlistment decision. This information assists in developing an understanding of the factors that are important to service members, which should facilitate policies to increase retention of Navy enlisted members.
